Arrgh, that tone is off-putting, but in a way I still hope he's right. Thumb via New Old Stock.

'This Is Your Brain on Capitalism': CNBC Market Analyst Rick Santelli Calls for Infecting Global Population With Coronavirus to Help Wall Street

quote [ After a volatile day of trading on Wall Street Thursday precipitated by ongoing fears of the economic effects of the global coronavirus outbreak, CNBC analyst Rick Santelli suggested it would be better to infect the world population with the disease all at once to help stock prices. ]

Sure why not - 32 million deaths worldwide at the current mortality rate is a small price to pay for for a handful of billionaires stock portfolios.

All Things Linguistic

quote [ Weird Internet Careers are weird because there is no one else who does exactly what they do. They?re internet because they rely on the internet as a cornerstone, such as bloggers, webcomics, youtubers, artists, podcasters, writers, developers, subject-matter experts, and other people in very specific niches. And they?re careers because they somehow manage to support themselves, often making money from some combination of ad revenue, t-shirt sales, other merch, ongoing membership/subscription (Patreon, Substack), crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Ko-Fi), sponsorship deals, conventional book deals, self-published ebooks, selling online courses, selling products or apps or services, public speaking, and consulting. ]

So what's that your doing again?

The Human Cost of Recycled Cotton | The Craftsmanship Initiative

quote [ Organic, recycled, or synthetic: as the fashion industry scrambles to find more sustainable textiles, what's the future of cotton? ]

Good roundtrip through methods of recycling fabrics. In the old days, one would have milled paper out of it.

How Your Laptop Ruined Your Life

quote [ More than the smartphone, laptops ended ?work hours? as a concept. An office used to be a thing you went to for a certain number of hours a day ]

Yeah, a nod-piece. Still, many colleagues seem puzzled by me asking for a stationary machine and merely copying work stuff to my private computer when I need to.
Not carrying a laptop to and from an office (even your own!) takes a big weight off one's shoulders. Call it your private air gap.
